Here is some Info on our Band & the Members
POURING RAIN is a 4-piece original rock band formed in 1998 by brothers
Cary & Bob Moore after a good stint at playing covers in an AC\DC rock band
called ROLLING THUNDER, which was fronted by another brother Derek Moore.
Starting off as a 3-piece and then moving on to the 2-guitar sound the band has
a pop,rock,punk sound which varies from song to song.But with a band filled
with 80s rock fans we don't go out of the circle to much. a 12 song CD out called
PISSIN DOWN which has some early roar stuff & some later milder stuff but it
all falls under the pouring rain category. A lot of it is just flat out as Bob only knows
one speed on drums, but some songs we managed to slow him down a bit which
added some contrast between the songs so you don't get bored with one style.
If you like the crunch of 2 guitars then Clive Matamua & Glen Parslow will
show you how its done.Labelling Pouring Rain a guitar band is an understatment
as there understanding of 2 guitars means there catchy riffs & basic rhythems
are one, and tend to resurface later on
(probably 4 in the morning when your trying to sleep)
